I love the idea of recipes on the back of the card face!
Ditto Dave,
It's always been a tradition to decorate with them.

I used to send out op to 100 cards but don't do that anymore due to the high cost of postage. I now just send to close family and friends that send to me too.

You got that right! 100 cards costs about $44.00! That's gift money!

I mailed out 20 cards yesterday. When we were in Germany last summer, we visited the largest Christmas store in the world. It had an adorable antique Christmas truck parked in front, and we thought far enough ahead to have our picture taken in front of it. We have a computer program for Christmas cards, and we sure had fun making them. Merry Christmas to all of my DC friends.

Merry Christmas, Kayelle! What a wonderful picture and memory! Thanks for sharing.

My question for everyone is, who signs the cards in your house?

I sign both our names.

Shrek feels the same about me. Something about a camera stuck in my face.

My face always goes completely blank or such a fake smile it ruins the picture. Most often in Candid shots.

How about, "Smile or the Kindle gets it!"
